Disconnecting Circuit Breaker (DCB) with Fiber Optic Current Sensor (FOCS) 420 - 550 kV for Digital substations

A smart grid ready solution for use with IEC 61850-9-2LE process bus communication

The DCB with FOCS includes three functions in one device: measurement, interruption and isolation. FOCS is a Fiber Optic Current Sensor that replaces the conventional current transformer for current measurement. Integrating the FOCS into a DCB (Disconnecting Circuit Breaker) provides the following advantages:

  • Short-circuit performance at twice the industry standard 
  • Faster installation times; plug and play
  • One FOCS replaces many CT cores, simplifying design and engineering substations
  • Lower environmental impact 
  • More intelligent protection and control due to smart process bus interface  

A Disconnecting Circuit Breaker (DCB) provides the functions of a circuit breaker and a disconnector combined in a single unit. Read more

Applications
